New permanent position at DTU: Senior Researcher/Researcher in Fatigue of Composite Materials

A Senior Researcher/Researcher position is available at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), at the Department of Wind Energy in the Section of Composites and Materials Mechanics. The Section consists of about 30 people and has modern laboratories for manufacturing and mechanical testing of composite materials. Research is conducted in research projects usually with external national or international collaboration. The research focusses on composites materials consisting of long, aligned fibres in a polymer matrix for use in wind turbine blades.

A paper on fracture resistance enhancement of layered structures by multiple cracks

We have just published a new paper that presents a theoretical model to test if the fracture resistance of a layered structure can be increased by introducing weak layers changing the cracking mechanism. An analytical model, based on the J integral, predicts a linear dependency between the number of cracks and the steady state fracture resistance. A finite element cohesive zone model, containing two cracking planes for simplicity, is used to check the theoretical model and its predictions.

Deadline is approaction: 10 april - "Risø Int. Symposium: Composite materials for structural performance: towards higher limits"

The deadline for abstract submission for the 32, 10th April 2011, is approaching. The title of the 32nd Risø International Symposium on Materials Science is "Composite materials for structural performance: towards higher limits". The Symposium will be held from Monday 5th September to Friday 9th September 2011 at Risoe DTU - National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Technical University of Denmark, 4000 Roskilde, Denmark. We think this is an exciting Symposium theme and we are proud to present a great list of key-note presentations:

"Composite materials for structural performance: Towards higher limits", Risø International Symposium, 5-9 September 2011

I would like to invite you to submit papers for the 32nd Risø International Symposium on Materials Science: "Composite materials for structural performance: towards higher limits". The idea of the symposium is to explore what are the real limits of structural performance of composite structures, covering both limitations by (a) the properties of the materials and (b) limits from the design methods and criteria used in the structural design process.
